Easy Holiday Drink: Winter Slushes

Holiday drink #47 in Food Network Magazine's 50 Holiday Drinks booklet.

I knew that I was finally an adult when my mother let me have my first Brandy Slushie (#47 in Food Network Magazine’s 50 Holiday Drinks booklet) at our annual holiday party one year.  I tried to recreate this recipe from memory for the booklet, and when I gave my mom a copy of the magazine, she approved, but said that something was missing.  It turns out that all those years she had boiled her water and sugar with a secret bag of green tea!  The difference with the tea is subtle; either way the slushes are yummy.  Experiment with your favorite tea and start a family tradition.

Brandy Slushes from 50 Holiday Drinks

Bring 1 cup each water and sugar to a boil; cool completely. Mix with 1-1/2 cups brandy, 2 cups orange juice and 1/2 cup lemon juice in a baking dish; freeze until slushy. Scoop into glasses, top with seltzer and stir to desired slushiness.
